It's Clear That The World Needs Shaq Now More Than Ever

Of course you've seen him in hot pursuit of criminals in the Shaqmobile, and it's no secret that he snaps into action whenever President Bush activates his signal watch, helping to preserve the honor and dignity of this nation's highest office. And sure he can bust through walls. But now here's Shaquille O'Neal as you've never seen him; crusading to battle the evils of childhood obesity.

Shaquille O'Neal will be taking a shot at a TV reality show focused on childhood obesity and health. The series, being filmed in Broward County, Fla., will track the lives of the children involved. O'Neal will be on hand as booster and, in episodes yet to be shot, will lobby politicians on causes including school nutrition, Daily Variety reported Monday.
